the idea of the book is a terrific one, forgiveness is a blessing quality human can have, it changes you from inside so that you can be able to give & love your partner, however i didn't like the repetitive ideas in the book and the countless cases in that therapy, it was too much to read about each single case with so many details i had to skip parts of the book, those tiny details and the style of writing them killed that interest to learn more about forgiveness.

While some of the ideas aren't bad, the presentation is very authoritative and normative; for me, not a helpful book.

I heard Luskin interviewed on NPR about his Stanford "Forgiveness Project", which enticed me to read the book.

I was not fond of the use of anacronyms (PERT, HEAL) to remind us of mental exercises. However, the exercises were helpful for me. This book guided me through an important process in ...more

Not sure I am going to read this word for word, but it has interesting definitions of forgiveness, stages of forgiveness, and steps to forgiveness. Includes a chapter on self-forgiveness. Many anecdotes and written by someone who has studied forgiveness for about 25 years. So few relationship books address the topic.

Forgive!!! not a given process, takes a transformative journey to reach it. I agree with the author: you can't love and taste the sweetness of life and people if you don't learn and know how to Forgive.

I highly recommend this book. It offers attainable steps to living a life filled with forgiveness. I learned to recognize the difference in forgiving one incident as opposed to approaching all relationships through the eyes of forgiveness.

I have really enjoyed this book. I felt like it really cleared some misconceptions up for me about forgiveness. And has made it more clear and easy to forgive. It gave me some good tools and empowerment.
